Outdoor spaces can truly be magical places. From the twinkle of string lights above to the warmth of a soft textured blanket, outdoor spaces can really come alive if you style them thoughtfully. Plus, decorating your garden/patio/fire escape in a bohemian way for summer is the perfect backdrop for entertaining friends. All you need is colorful textiles, string lights, old furniture, plants, and maybe some lanterns. Below you'll find some great examples of bohemian outdoor spaces and how to achieve the look. Have fun!
Bring on the pattern - from chevron to Persian patterned rugs, your options are endless.
2. Color Scheme
Go either all out with colors galore or stick to a more modern, collected palette.
A great way to achieve the boho look is through the addition of texture. From sheepskin, drapery, or macrame, there's plenty of options luckily!
4. Natural Elements
Bring in nature in more ways than just plants (which are listed later down the list) by bringing in natural woods and rattan.
This is when plants get to shine! Bring on potted trees in cool planters and bright blooms to enliven a space.
6. Global Influences
Nothing screams boho quite like a vast collection of goods from around the globe. Opt for Moroccan textiles like pillows and blankets, Mexican paper garlands for entertaining, Indian lanterns, or African mudcloth for a more modern, streamlined look.
7. Pops of Metallic
Brass, gold, and copper all work great. You can sprinkle in metallics with a Moroccan brass tea tray table, gold or silver poufs or pillows, or lanterns and various tabletop accessories like vases and gold-rimmed glassware.
8. Cool Lighting
Woven basked lanterns or Middle-Eastern work great!
